I'm trying to use the ndiswrapper with my Linksys WPC54g card.
I'm using a debian with the 2.4.24 kernel.
I had no problems to install the ndiswrapper with "install.sh" but
when I reboot, I use iwconfig to see if the wlan0 interface is up
lo no wireless interface
The wlan0 interface is not up. Why is the driver not auto loaded ?
Then to load the driver I use :
ndiswrapper version 0.4 loaded
wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
I configure the key and the essid
When I use iwconfig to see the settings, it writes :
lo no wirelles interface
Warning : Device wlan0 has been compiled with version 16
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 12.
Some things may be broken...
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"xxxxx"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437Ghz Access Point: FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
Bit Rate=54Mb/s Tx-Power:17 dBm
RTS thr=2347 B Fragment thr=2346 B

Link Quality: 100/0 Signal level:-10 dBm Noise level:-256 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:307 Missed beacon:0
The problem is that the driver is not autoloaded and the key and the essid are lost.
What can I do to have the settings autoloaded with the driver ?
